It's Advertising Week in New York! In this week's episode, we chat about sessions we went to (and moderated) and the industry trends everyone's been talking about. We also talk about the first presidential debate, and how brands (and an old sitcom) newsjacked it. And we run through some of the big winners from Wednesday's Clio Awards.
It's all about television this week, as Adweek TV reporter Jason Lynch and the rest of our panel chat about the Emmys, as well as which new broadcast shows we should (and shouldn't) be watching this fall. We also talk about new Apple and Audi ads, the ubiquitous James Corden, and yes, whether the Brangelina split really is the end of the world as we know it.
Can Samsung get past the Galaxy Note 7's teeny tiny explosion problem? Can AdBlock Plus win back users who think it's a traitor for selling "acceptable" ads? Can all subway ads (please) be replaced by cats? Our panel of Adweek experts tackles these burning questions and looks over 2016's winners in our Media Plan of the Year awards.
The new iPhone is here and it's ... shinier? Also, we ponder Cam Newton's connection to Watership Down and debate Dos Equis' new, Franco-Spanish Most Interesting Man in the World. Then we dig deep into Facebook's war with ad blockers. Our theme music is by Home.
McDonald's has a new agency, Facebook Trending has new robot overlords, Stranger Things is coming back, Pretty Little Liars is going away, and audio is the new video. Adweek's David Griner, Kristina Monllos, Tim Nudd and Alfred Maskeroni discuss it all, including the viral glory of sex with sandwiches.
